A Superior Court judge says New Hampshire's right-to-know laws should apply to the towns and businesses in charge of cleaning up the Coakley Landfill Superfund site.

The Coakley Landfill Group, or CLG, includes the municipalities and companies that contributed to pollution at the landfill.

There probably is never a good moment for an entire town’s Board of Selectmen to resign, but a few days before paychecks for municipal employees are scheduled to go out certainly wasn’t it.

New Hampshire's Attorney General's office says a jury forewoman received a letter from a prison inmate she helped convict of murder asking why he was found guilty and offering evidence that he says makes him innocent.

The juror contacted the office on July 6 about the letter mailed to her from Richard Moore. He was convicted of first-degree murder in May in the 2016 death of ex-girlfriend, Joanne Boucher, and sentenced to life without parole. Moore denied he was responsible for Boucher's death.

A former New Hampshire Boy Scout leader has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting four scouts two decades ago.

Eugene Perreault entered his plea Monday to multiple felony charges and was sentenced to 12 to 30 years in prison.

Prosecutors say the 70-year-old Newfields man assaulted the scouts in the 1990s and early 2000s. He was arrested in October 2016 after two victims went to police.

One victim testified during Monday's hearing saying, "the court can't give me my life and this sentence can't give me personal closure."
